US Supreme Court slams robo callers in recent case.

A class action was brought against a federal contractor for violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The TCPA prohibits using any automatic dialing system to send a text message to a cellular telephone absent prior express consent. The Court held that the class action could go forward, ¬†and that the contractor was not immune because it had exceeded it’s authority by sending messages to individuals who had not “opted in”.
